Our event is conducted in a fairly remote area and we request participants to plan their logistics well in advance. Please take a few minutes to look at our sample itineraries before you plan.
We will update our site as we get closer to the event to help you plan last mile travel. Please DO NOT follow instructions provided by Google Maps (they are wrong!) and use the instructions that we have provided on our site.
Travel to Attigundi Area
Attigundi is about 300 kms by road from Bangalore and it takes about 6 hours to get here with 1-2 breaks.
Suggested Route from Bangalore (please do not follow Google Maps directions; they are incorrect):
- Bangalore to Hassan on NH 75 (about 180 kms, 3 hours driving time)
- Take Hassan Bypass to Chikmagalur via Belur on SH 373 (about 60 kms, 75 mins driving time)
- Chikmagalur to Kaimara on SH 57 (about 8 kms, 20 minutes driving time)
- Kaimara to Attigundi on Bababudangiri Road (about 16 kms, 40 minutes driving time)
- Attigundi to Start Area could take an additional 30-60 minutes
Please note that most homestays and resorts are between Kaimara and Attigundi and it is unlikely that you will have to drive all the way to Attigundi to reach your place of stay.
For participants coming from other parts of India by rail, the nearest railway station is Kadur (Station Code DRU). If you are taking an express train that does not stop at Kadur, your next best option is Birur Junction (Station Code RRB). There is good connectivity from most parts of India.
Attigundi is about 70 kms by road from Birur and you will have to organise local taxis to cover this distance. The travel time from Kadur/Birur to Attigundi is about 2 hours. Please review Road travel information provided here to help you plan further.
Bengaluru International Airport (Airport Code BLR) is about 280 kms from Attigundi. We recommend that you organise a cab or self-drive rental from Bangalore airport and plan on keeping the car until you return after the event. Please review Road travel information provided here to help you plan further.
